GUEST SPEAKER FOR THIS EVENT


We are excited to announce this years AGM Speakers:

Throughout the year MA host an array of ongoing PD Events, and in following each event attendees are requested to take 3minutes to complete our quick online survey. The results of the surveys are reviewed and provide MA with valuable information about the event itself, the venue, the cost, the facilitator and material presented and more recently a snap-shot of the attendees level of qualification. In addition to those questions, we have also asked the following:

If you are an Advanced Diploma qualified Myotherapist, are you or have you considered undertaking studies in either of the Myotherapy Degree courses. If so, which one: Endeavour or SSNT. If not, please provide a reason why.

Collating this information enabled MA to better understand why a number of Adv Dip qualified Myotherapists may not look to pursue further studies into the Myotherapy Degree, and with this we were able to approach each training provider and request that they personally address our members to help provide a better understanding about the career opportunities available in undertaking these studies.

A representative from each training provider and a student​ (or recent graduate​) of the pathways program will discuss the following at this years AGM:

i) benefits to the individual practitioner of upgrading,

ii) benefits to the individual practitioner

iii) barriers to completing the upgrade


Along with providing some answers to assist in the following queries/concerns commonly associated with ​decisions not to take up the further studies​, including:

Financially difficult​

Time restraints

Geographical distance from the trainer provider



2 FORMAL PDPs awarded for face - to- face attendance and of this event, online attendees receive 2 INFORMAL PDPs
